We, the undersigned residents of Cloverdale hereby submit our signatures to indicate our opposition to Application # 7918-0258-00. The proposed housing project is in the wrong location to provide for the needs of the tenants. There is inadequate transit, no substantial medical or mental health facilities, no adult education resources, no job training resources and last but not least, no reasonable entertainment sources. We believe that the minimal proposed on-site staffing level is dangerous for the staff, the residents, and the general public. The proposed location is in the direct vicinity of several centre's for vulnerable members of the public: numerous child day cares, elementary schools, a high school, the Czorny Alzheimer's care centre, as well as the forthcoming PICS 5-storey, 140-bed senior's home. To make things even more difficult for the supportive housing residents, now that the movie theatre is gone the only places open after the sun goes down are a few take-out restaurants, 4 bars and a 24-hour casino. The City of Surrey recently expended a huge amount of time and money working on a Cloverdale Town Centre Plan to revitalize Cloverdale's historic downtown. No part of the Plan is conducive to a 60-unit supportive housing building being built at its very core. The proposed location is ill-conceived and poorly thought out. It is not a location that offers any hope of future success for the disadvantaged people who will be forced to move there. Once again, we the undersigned residents of Cloverdale are against Application # 7918-0258-00 going forward in Cloverdale.
